by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so if you think of a couple places in the world that we were the most afraid of like europe, i think the actions of the ecb to at least defer the problems with the sovereigns and the bank issues in europe, if they use this time to fix the problems, we'll look back and think it's a good thing. if they deferred them, made them worse in the long term, we won't feel that way. i think something similar has happened in the united states whereby a lot of liquidity has been provided by the central bank. >> andrew, you have operations throughout all of the world. what's your sense of growth? there are troubling reports about growth slowing down which so far have been a very powerful lifeline for global growth as united states and europe weakened, particularly china where you do a lot of business. >> i don't think we're going have an '08/'09 scenario out there for the reasons lloyd was addressed. i do think the world since '08/'09 to now has not gotten to normal. of course, the obvious, which is consumption in the u.s., is not where it was.
in advance will be three on the economy and one each on health care, the role of government and governing. with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics and choices. both candidates will also have two minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain slinlt. no cheers, applause, boos, hisss among other noisy distracting things so we may all concentrate on what the candidates have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though, as we welcome president obama. and governor romney. [ applause ] >> jim. >> gentlemen, welcome to you both. let's start with the economy. segment one, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you would go about creating new jobs? you have two minutes. each of you have two minutes to start. a coin toss determined, mr. president, you go first. >> thank you very much, jim, for this opportunity. i want to thank governor romney and the university of denver for your hospitality. there are a lot of points i want to make tonight, but the most important one is, 20 years ago i became
's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife. >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it. let's face it, okay? but the facts are, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. there were 8.1, they were republicans and they were democrats and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> do you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack. your question was -- >> then you wake up in the morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of assumptions. >> there are two great facts you make. as the best ceo america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics and department of labor measures unemployment, number one, and b, maybe you think barack obama's not doing a good job and mitt romney should be replacing him. but to honestly suggest that there's corruption, that the obama campaign may have had something to do wi
a restart of the campaign. it's unanimous the government won that debate. the snap polls after the debate showed that. the governor promised he would aggressively counterattack against any mischaracterizations the president threw his way. an did that all night on the offense. he did offer some level of detail. >> i will eliminate all programs by this test if they don't pass it. is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? if not i will get rid of it. obama-care is on my list, i apologies, i use that term with all due respect. >> the big question for the romney campaign, is it going to start to move the needle in his direction. bill: we heard from the romney team, what are they saying about the obama team? >> reporter: there are an awful lot of democrats saying they don't know why the prr obama didn't bring his "a" game. some democrats described his body language on stage as being uncomfortable. james carville said it didn't look like the president wanted to be there, it was too much of a bother. here is what david axlerod. >> the president is never satis
candidate obama veers off from his prepared remarks and accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims in new orleans. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> greta: and now, former vice-presidential candidate, sarah palin, posting her response on facebook to the video. many of you have seen theuent 07 speech in which then senator obama suggested that because of racism, the federal government didn't waive the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four year
because they're too good? >> what we're seeing right now in my view is a trickle-down government approach which thinks that government can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. >> it's thursday, october 4th, and "starting point" begins right now. >> good morning! welcome, everybody. our starting point this morning is the morning after debate night in america. both candidates are on the campaign trail today, again, after the first of three presidential debates, the first one, of course, in denver last night. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe on critical issues, like the economy and health care. and by most accounts, it was mitt romney who emerged the victor. lots of debate analysis ahead on "starting point." we'll be talking live with john mccain of arizona and rand paul of kentucky. from team obama, we'll be speaking with martin o'malley and campaign spokeswoman, jen psaki. plus, obama's former economic adviser, austan goolsbee. first, though, a look at the instant reaction from the debate in the cnn/orc poll, of debate watchers taken right after the debat
government, i think that's going to hurt him. and ultimately i think that people in this country believe that barack obama is looking out for their interests, for their economic interests and for their future. >> it is clear where you stand politically. i don't want to ask you who you want to win, but honestly, who do you think will win tonight? >> i think on style i think right now i have to give the points to mitt romney. i think he's very well practiced. he's been apparently memorizing the zingers. i think he'll be very relaxed. when it comes to the substance, i think we'll have barack obama. so ultimately the people are going to have to choose who wins tonight. >> shannon o'brien, thank you very much. thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me back to 2002. we appreciate it. >>> just ahead, new information and images following that deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in libya, benghazi, which killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador. up next, an exclusive look at where ambassador christopher stevens spent his final moments. s to supply affordable, cleaner energy, wh
of the numbers. we had 600,000 government jobs added in the last two months. we had 873,000 jobs by a household survey, which is a total estimate, from 50,000 phone calls. of those 600,000 were temporary workers. chris, these numbers are all a series of assumptions. tons of assumptions. and it just seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election the numbers go 0.1% below when they were when the president started, although, i don't see anything in the economy that says these surges are true. the 873,000 jobs in the household survey is the strongest economy since 1983. i don't think you can find an economist. there were 25 of them this morning that predicted 8.1 to 8.2 but they did forget 114,000 jobs. we got 114,000 jobs and somehow, the assumptions ended up at 7.8. >> let me just get back to your tweet this morning. it must be embarrassing for you to do a tweet after the power you used to have. tweeting doesn't seem like something i'd hear from jack welch. and i mean it. unbelievable job numbers, fair enough. these chicago guys will do anything to change the numbers. what evidenc

on the domestic policies, focus on the economy, on health care, on the role of government. it will be a 90-minute debate. six segments of 15 minutes each. one main question per segment and two minutes to answer the question. the rest of the time will be for discussions. that's where we can expect some fireworks, perhaps. and in the audience will be vips, people whose campaigns have invited. both candidates will try not to make any mistakes. >> you think? you think that's what they're going to do. dan lothian joins us this morning. >>> other stories making news, believe it or not besides the debate, john berman has that with us. >> american airlines is going to inspect 47 of its boeing 757s after seats came loose in flight on two of its planes within days of each other. they checked 36 planes so far. six had seats not properly secured. american says not all of the seats were loose but they potentially could loosen. they say improperly installed clamps caused the problem. >>> twice on tuesday vice president joe biden's plane had to abort original landing plans. last night air force 2 couldn't land
or even libya, he says he would work with the government of libya to find the guys that murdered our ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you liste
's vision as trickled down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: it didn't take long after the debate was finished for the romney campaign to turn the spin room into the win room. are you declaring victory, jim, if this was a boxing match, the referee would have called it. after taking some knocks from some in the gop after spending too much time in debate prep and not enough in rally in swing states, the romney campaign felt vindicated. although eric fehrnstrom pushed back on the notion that the republican contender was more ready than the president. >> well, look, you know, i think at the end of the day both the president and governor romney probably put in an equal amount of time preparing for this debate. >> reporter: just two days after the president joked his own advisors were pushing him to do more debate prep. >> they're making me do my homework. >> reporter: obama campaign manager said romney had an advantage going into the debate. >> governor romney's prepared more for this debate than
had when he ran four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> reporter: president obama sounded a familiar alarm, warning of romney's been there, done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> reporter: but whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it was romney who stood out for his aggressive style. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, laid back manner, often appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top down economics where folks at the top are doing well so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle cl
will govern to the right of center and that's where the american people are. at the same time, he will use his ability, his knowledge, his humili humility, wisdom to work across the aisle and we have to do it. you know that. we cannot kick the can down the road anymore. we have to avoid this fiscal cliff. a new p romney, our 45th president, will do that. >> you are talking about campaign tactics and that's because an elected official. for me, regular voter, i hear that and i think this is kind of what is wrong with politics. just described -- we take one tactic and then you are going to completely change your position when talking to another audience. when you feel comfortable with that change because you feel that you know that he is going to govern to the right of center even though there are some changes that sound more left when he -- more centrist in wednesday night's debate. i understand someone -- their campaign, that may make sentence for you. for voters it feels like basically campaigning can be lying. >> well, i wouldn't call it lying. a football team has a lot of players, as you kno
successful of lowers taxes. and likewise those who are reliant on government are not as attracted to slimming down the size of government. it is not elegantly stated. i'm speaking off-the-cuff in response to a question and i'm sure i could state it more clearly than i did in a setting like that. i'm sure i'll point that out as time goes on. >> joining me now msnbc's alex wagner and chris hayes. the first round of this, he went the rush limbaugh route and explained the comments. he said this is such a golden opportunity. this could be the opportunity for the campaign to take the gloves off and explain conservatism. tonight he says, well that comment i was completely wrong. >> yeah, you know, lawrence the word that has popped into my head in the course of the last 4 hours was labotomy. that is the ome way they are going to believe in the things that he is saying or he has had one. which is the explanation for this pivot. i think what struck me last night was there was bt thn't th attempt to defend this positions to his tax plans to this position on education funding to any number of thing that
by the chavis government. it has happened already. i know another company was taken over by the chavez government. and the reality is that nobody really knows what is going to happen. so that's something that can be expected in the next six years. >> here is why we care and why we're talking about it. gas, oil, right? let me look down. they're the fourth largest exporter of oil to the united states. one of the top oil producing countries in the world but more than 35% of the population lives below the poverty line. as paula mentioned, economists are worried they could go off the cliff here. she mentioned default in a couple of months. listen to what some economists are saying. >> they have already reached point where the current situation can't continue, a continuation of the current policy framework could culminate in a crisis effectively. >> right now, at least, we need the oil when you hear the precarious situation that is their economy, should we be worried? >> i find the situation very ironic. we, the united states, get about 8% to 9% of the oil from venezuela, a socialist country
? is restriction not one purpose of progressive taxation? is not most of what government does, from agriculture subsidies to subsidized student loans to entitlements, the restriction of well the from one cohort or region to another? thank you george will. steve, i've been trying to explain that to mitt romney that every form of taxation is restriction. i, too, would love to hear him called on that one. >> yeah. if we're talking about the whole restriction in this debate tomorrow night, i think it's a symptom of a broader problem for mitt romney and that is we're basically talking about the stuff that he's been talking about to appeal to the republican base. the idea that obama is a restrictioni restrictionist, this is something that has emerged within the base of the republican party that animates them but we have seen that for four years. that image of obama does not have resonance with the swing voters. so romney has been pitching that to the base and he continues to talk about it and his campaign continues to put it out there. if you're talking about that in the debate you're not winning ove
to describe those visions. i saw the president's vision as trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> not to be outdone, president obama tried to rebound from his pretty weak debate performance at a rally in denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow onstage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> tonight, the post-debate political landscape seems rather different. a whopping 67% think mitt romney won the debate. 25% for president obama. there's a long way to go in this debate and the divide between left and right is growing. that brings me to tonight's battleground america. the debate you have been waiting for. jennifer granholm versus newt gingrich. she's the former governor of michigan. he's of course, the former presidential candidate a
throw out an accusation, that is like asking the government, how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it. no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was 115,000, not one had a number below 8.1. >> labor secretary shot back at the conspiracy thererists with an interview with richard quest. >> i have the highest regard for our professional staff. highly skilled, ph.d.s, statisticians and folks working in this area for many years and this is methodology that has been used for decades and it is insulting when you hear people cavalierly say that we are manipulating numbers. i find that very insulting. >> some may feel the latest jobs report gives a boost to the obama campaign. not mitt romney, he scanned the numbers and said, this is not what a real recovery looks like. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> the numbers don't change their game plan for winning the election, it's still the economy. campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romn
or with the government. what does that mean, fred? it can mean not getting into university or getting a job. >> is there any indication of when we might hear about these election results? >> reporter: it's going to be a late night for sure. what's different is the system is completely automated, but you don't count votes until 85 of the votes have returned. when you talk about long line-ups, fred, it could be a long night. >> thanks so much in carraacasc venezuela. >>> hoping to build momentum following the presidential debat debates, president obama stumping in california, mitt romney also on the road after what many saw as a lackluster debate last week for the president in particular. he's hoping the new lower unemployment rate will give him a boost. the president is attending a fund-raiser in los angeles, and then he heads on to ohio. mitt romney in the meantime is spending the weekend in florida where yesterday he spent much of the day preparing for the next debate. it's a must-win state if he wants to capture the white house. >>> and, of course, you don't want to forget that the vice p
's specifics were rather thin. >> i'll support the libyan's people efforts to support a lasting government. >> how about iran? >> prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> that's the same. >> this is the same guy who couldn't even go to the olympics. >> he will say anything, he will do anything. >> his mention of russia. >> without question of number one geo political foe. >> there are two kinds of success, initial and ultimate. >> i still believe you in and i hope you still believe in me. if you vote for me in november i'll finish what we started. >> with four weeks until election day, the romney etch a sketch machine is furiously trying to erase every crazy thing mitt romney has said. in a foreign policy speech mitt romney contradicted what he said on a secretly recorded tape. here's what he said on the tape. >> the palestinians don't wanting to see peace anyway, and these thorny issues and i say there's just know way. so what you do is you move things along the best way you can. but you recognize it's going to remain an unsolved problem. >> and today, the guy who said t
among other things of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> so at the same time yesterday, there was another video posted on the huffington post showing congressman paul ryan speaking in november of 2011 about ten months ago about a moral tipping point in the united states. that was six months before mitt romney's 47% remarks. >> before too long, we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dol
. >> the president and his supporters, they're basking in the glow of the government's monthly jobs report. it is unexpectedly good. the nation's rate of unemployment took three ticks downward, 7.8%, that is still high, yes, but it is not political poison as in 8% or above. september jobs creation hit six figures, 114,000, and this is pretty interesting here because as it often does, the labor department revised its find frgz the last two months. revised them way upward. its latest tally is at 142,000 new jobs in august. that is up from 96,000. and the new tally for july topped 180,000 new jobs. mitt romney, just like the president in virginia today as well, is saying the recent unemployment keeps dropping is that more and more americans have given up, given up finding work and they're not counted as unemployed. >> i'll tell you this, when i'm president of the united states, when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the workforce, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get
which has allowed him to fill up those government coffers, and his government proposes that, yes, they have shared the wealth, and it's true that even according to the u.n. there are fewer people today living in poverty in venezuela than there were when chavez took office. you know, randi, there is a sense here that, look, his time is over, and that's not just because he fought cancer. he claims he's cancer-free but on the campaign trail he isn't looking very healthy, and there is this sense that chavez revolution, the very left wing socialist revolution that he started, could be waning and the problem is taking from government coffers they haven't really invested as much. if you start from that oil infrastructure moving right down to the roads, in caracas, in the capital or out to the regions where there's lots of power, this is a country hanging on by a fiscal threat and they say next year default is perhaps possible and for sure financial restructuring will have to happen, and that could mean a devaluation of the currency here. randi? >> paula, what is at stake really for the
on piece. they announce a peace deal. those rebels have been battling the government for the past 15 years. they would establish an autonomous region for a minority population in the south a. in israel the country's military has shut down an unmanned drone over the desert. in a statement, he said israel views the flyover very severely and it's considering a response. it's not clear where the drone originated from. it was not carried any weapons or explosives. >>> it's election day in venezuela and polls are now open. world leaders will now be watching this one. president hugo chavez is seeking a fourth term there. >>> a north korean soldier has done what very few others have been able to. he defected to the south and told authorities when he got there, he had just killed his superior. cnn's paula hancocks has details. >> reporter: it's not unknown but certainly rare for someone to escape through the dmz. it is described as the most heavily fortified border on earth and yet a north korean soldier was able to walk across it on saturday. the joint chiefs of staff described to reporters how he
